The new millennium has seen some impressive college linebacker units leaving together for the NFL draft. First it was in 2003, when Miami had a pair of first-round picks in D.J. Williams and Jonathan Vilma, followed by Darrell McClover in the seventh round. Then in 2005, Ohio State one-upped the Hurricanes when the first-round tandem of A.J. Hawk and Bobby Carpenter were accompanied by third-round selection Anthony Schlegel. But USC is about to trump both the Canes and the Buckeyes with its ridiculously talented foursome of Rey Maualuga, Brian Cushing, Clay Matthews and Kaluka Maiava.
